 Pig
Novel - Age 11+
£5.99




Winner Young Africa Award

 

 

 

 

A compelling story about a small but brave adolescent who simply refuses to deny his past for the sake of a passport into the gang. In the end an old Zulu man - whom a lesser boy would have jettisoned for the sake of possible acceptance - helps him fight back.

“Most refreshing writing” - Richard Rive

“A profound insight into the psyche of a growing boy” - Library Selected Books 1989

“Highly involving… a real find” - The Guardian
